Create a Lasting Memory Through Planned Giving
The Sawmill Museum is more than a place to view old sawmill equipment and to interact with history. It's a community center serving the needs of the local citizens. Thus, a planned gift to the museum is more than a gift to the museum. It's a gift to the community. To arrange a planned gift to the museum to create a lasting memory, please contact our Treasurer, Ron Kircher, at 563.242.3440.
Sponsor an Exhibit or Program
Donors can also sponsor a particular exhibit or program. Sponsors will have the exhibit or program named after them. To sponsor an exhibit or program, please contact our Treasurer, Ron Kircher, at 562.242.3440
